Our Towns

A 100,000 Mile Journey into the Heart of America

“Our Towns” chronicles the authors’ five-year journey across the United States in a small plane. The husband-wife team visits dozens of towns to explore the challenges facing the communities — from economic hardships to the scourge of drugs. They also document the common characteristics that underwrite success in those towns — energy, generosity, determination, compassion and determination. The final chapter summarizes the 10 signs of a thriving city. The book is an uplifting look at the future and how problem-solving begins locally.

    This book is truly one to read. It talks about James and Deborah and their journey across the country. It is positively patriotic and I encourage anybody to read it. Especially the people that are in major cities as it’s important for us to not forget about the towns in the middle of the country.
